i keep running into "this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" errors with nprotect, rundll32, and msgsrv32 upon inital start. does it need any specific VBox settings or a specific version to run properly? (using version 6.0.14 r133895)

Convenient but weird sound issues
Some sounds don't seem to work, while others do. It's weird. For a game I tried (BLAST THRU), the sounds in game didn't work. There are .wav files in the games directory. They do not play in Windows Media Player but play just fine in Sound Recorder. Also tried dxdiag, I could not hear anything in the Sound test but the Music test worked (but was very choppy). The bell that dxdiag does on each dialog was also fine, as was the Windows startup sound.

Thank you! I was close to giving up trying to get anything pre-XP fully usable in Virtualbox, mostly due to having trouble finding graphics drivers that would do the job. Your efforts are highly appreciated. It's a fully working installation with a few goodies, and none of the frustration - everything works so far.
